Kenya Police Service and inspector general join social media

The Kenya Police Service and its inspector general have joined Twitter in a move to boost transparency, curb incidents and strengthen the interior ministry’s communication department.

Kenyan police will be using the handle @policeKe, with the inspector general on @IGKimaiyo, and will seek to ease engagement with the public and initiate community programmes for what the interior ministry calls a “Secure Kenya”.

David Kimayo, inspector general, has generated more than 900 followers at the time of publishing and warned imposters using different Twitter handles masquerading as Kenya Police will be arrested.

Joseph Ole Lenku, interior and coordination of national government cabinet secretary, said plans to have the Twitter accounts verified are underway to ensure authenticity of the security messages.

Kenyans were also on hand to congratulate the law enforcers on the move.

Kimaiyo also said they will be launching the website soon and gave the official pages for the police on Facebook.
